    Well, I blame the wind for me sucking; that's my story.....
    It's good for skinny cans too.

    Doesn't look too sucky to me. Actually it looks pretty good.

    I tried it on paper at 100 yards today and I am a happy camper. The front sight all but covered the paper plate at that range. Ignore the .243 holes. If the holes look oblong it's because the target is angled over the mudslide

    Thanks, I agree. When things calm down around here I intend to try it on skunks and raccoons and pigs if luck allows. It's so muddy this spring I'm not even worried about ricochets. Oh yeah, mud turtles!

    Never could understand the "its only a 100 yard cartridge" mentality. It may be only loaded to be a 100 yard cartridge.....but that doesn't make it a 100 yard only cartridge!

    I'm not scoping it so 100 yards and preferably under that due to my vision. The does and cull bucks I usually shoot get leetle out beyond.

    My beautiful and deadly wife used the 44-40 to hit a football sized Rock in The Cattails on the far side of this pond. On her first shot. She has only fired this gun once before about a year ago. About 200 yards give or take. A little later I took out a large mud turtle but at the sedate range of 100 yards LOL.

    44-40 is good over 100 yards as shown by your wife's one shot hit on that rock.
    You do have a fine looking project rifle there that appears to be more capable than you claim.

    Be Happy and Enjoy It!

    Nice! Enjoy the successful results of your project and make sure you treat your wife well. ...As your head is probably also about the size of a football.

    Truth! She asked with a twinkle in her eye- "This will kill a deer, won't it?"

    I do believe she was thinking "dear"
    Hell, I was there!
